LA Noire Pre-Order Bonuses Will Be Available as DLC Soon-ish after Launch
I haven’t played LA Noire at all yet, and it’s already annoying me. It’s one thing for a game to have an extra outfit or shotgun as a store-specific pre-order incentive, and it another, far more horrible thing entirely to have actual game missions be available to people who buy the game at one store or another. LA Noire does this, and it makes me angry. However: like Red Dead Redemptions bonuses, these will be available for everyone to purchase some time after launch day.
How long after is the question. With Red Dead, one particular pack of pre-order items (Deadly Assassin outfit, War Horse and Gold Guns pack) is going to be available for download next week for the first time by people whose copies didn’t come with a download code. At the end of Rockstar’s announcement about that content becoming available was this note about LA Noire bonuses:
Apologies to everyone for having to wait so long to get these available as DLC as there were some unanticipated technical delays – for those of you inquiring about the expected availability of the L.A. Noire preorder bonuses as DLC after game release, those should become available as DLC much, much sooner.
We aren’t going to forget that you said this, Rockstar.
